So … the economy recovers, people start driving again, demand for oil picks up and, bam, the Middle East goes haywire. Gas sits on the edge of $4/gallon just west of downtown Chicago. I’ve seen it as high as a dime above at North Side stations.

Thing is, Libya’s merely a symptom of a greater problem. I’ve been predicting $4 or $4.50 gas this summer for at least a year. Margins are too close, and there’s no spare capacity, regardless of what the Saudis might say. If it weren’t Libya, it would have been something. Maybe a hurricane. Maybe another ecological disaster. Something.

Another prediction. We’ll come close to $5 (in Chicago) before this is over. And how will it be over? Great Recession, Part II. The second of what could be many rounds. Hold onto those 401k accounts.
